The Most Accurate Information About the COVID-19 Vaccine

The forthcoming COVID-19 vaccine will soon be spread around the nation, free of charge, in limited doses. If the internet is any indicator, people have decided to freak out about it.

Then again, on the internet, people freak out about everything. Any seemingly nice deed is done with malicious intent, every seemingly tragic event is secretly orchestrated by our elected officials. In a cyber world of insanity, who is insane, ignorant, smart, and dumb? Who is right and who is wrong?

Concerning COVID-19 about 1.44 million people have now died worldwide. Many of these folks were old, young, pregnant, or had a poor immune system due to another ailment. No doubt, people should be aware but certainly ‘freaking out’ is not necessary. Let me repeat Fox News, MSNBC and CNN: Freaking out is NOT necessary.

Over the years, I’ve heard people on the right accuse Obama of being born in Kenya. I’ve heard people on the left accusing President Trump of being controlled by Russia, or of Dick Cheney secretly palling around with Bin Laden in hopes to make the proper investments in preparation of America’s downfall. And I’ve read that this is all an evil plot to get rid of 90% of the population.

Valid points have arose about some vaccines in the 1970’s gone bad and the continued use of asbestos that’s lead to thousands of death due to mesothelioma cancer, but still, it’s hard to swallow some of the accusations being swirled around cyber dramaland.

More people seem to be sick these days. Sick in the head, sick physically and sick with fear. The media is trying to make a dollar off of it. The health care industry, well, you know they are trying to profit off of it. I say everyone needs to check their hearts to make sure they are beating. If so, enjoy the new day. If not, we’ll celebrate your life. But for the love of all that is hearsay and rumor, stop all the nonsense. It makes us all look cowardly and foolish.

Rant over. Happy to be here along with my other recent refugees. Howdy all. The ship has landed safely.

You make some good points but your overall concept is a bit too kumbaya for me.

In order for the vaccine to work Biden/Harris will need to take office. From there I can assure you that there will be a visible change in how the government is dealing with COVID…we’ll go from the vacuum that is happening now to a full court press about the virus, its effects, and how to avoid it, plus real action to do something about it. You can bet the Republicans in Congress won’t go along, simply because they will want to shift the blame, but Biden and his team are going to be super experienced and know how to work things so that stuff gets done.

The second is that people will understand what nonsense it is…it’s a virus, spreading uncontrollably, and no reasonable person will expect the Biden administration to get it under control immediately. Paired with a visible response, people will get that something is finally being done, especially as the vaccine rolls out. The death rate will go down, cases will go down, and it will be seen as Biden coming to the rescue. As it damn well should be.

We are also likely going to get a surge of cases in the conservative world from all the crazy right wingers that decide to crowd into their churches together…deaths from those events will be tremendous, and will happen before Biden takes over. The right wingers will only have themselves to blame for bringing that death upon them, and the Republican Supreme Court that opened the door…the rest of the nation should take instruction from that and really understand which side is invested in keeping people alive. That leads into health care, and caring in general, as the theme for the 2022 election…rescuing the nation from the pandemic really should help the Democrats, especially if red America has huge die offs and refuses to take a vaccine.

Yes, a surge of cases related to GOP super-spreader events, religious and otherwise, appears to be inevitable. Too bad that the many hospitals now at capacity, in which medical personnel are required to make heart-wrenching decisions about who gets the limited resources and who doesn’t, cannot institute rules that say COVID-deniers/superspreaders who attend such events will need to get to the end of the line when decisions are made about who gets treated first.

…or can they? It would make for a very interesting SCOTUS case if such a rule was challenged because the question would not be a religious one.

Nah, hospitals would never institute such a rule and I’m a bad person for even thinking such a thing.

Actually, problems related to rules limiting the gatherings of religious institutions could be overcome if the rules were written in a different way, with criteria that identified the composition of the group without specifying the specific social nature of the group. It could be something like number of people x length of exposure x type of ventilation x person density of the space in which the event is held and only kick in if the event was to involve x number of people. There could be a be a legal baseline number - a point beyond which it becomes unsafe to gather - derived from a calculation using these factors and any event that exceeded it would be in violation and could be closed down.

Thanks for the positive post and ignore the obvious partisan hacks here who are content to be steeped in pessimism than actually embracing the actual facts due to it not being politically expedient! Truth matters, feelings? Not so much! Welcome to the site and look forward to more substantive posts by you!

Cheers :beers:

I think branding or tattooing should be applied to those who attend large gatherings, resist masks, or otherwise work to spread the virus and the death. And such markings should determine where you are in line—waaayyyyyyy back.

So it’s true. Democrats do supporting death panels. Thanks for finally clearing that up.

Avoid it like the plague.
The ilk of Bill Gates is the plague.

ROFLMAO.

A bit of drama queen aren’t you. The vaccine appears to work regardless of politics and is simply a matter of distribution.

But Joey said he has a plan. IS the plan to remain in the basement???

People 69 years old or younger, the survival rate is between 99.5 percent and 99.997 percent.

p.s. The village idiot with dementia is a prime target for the corona virus, over 69 and secondary condition(dementia).

I think plastic bags should be issues to all leftists like yourself as it would be much more effective when tied tightly over the head.

Why are you people so paranoid about this virus?

CDC: People 69 years old or younger, the survival rate is between 99.5 percent and 99.997 percent

There actually isn’t any need to go to all the hassle of branding or tattooing. A simple questionnaire asking, “Do you own a MAGA cap?” would suffice.

Perhaps the branding should be for the weak minds like yourself.

“Adopting measures to protect the vulnerable should be the central aim of public health responses to COVID-19… nursing homes should use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent PCR testing of other staff and all visitors… Retired people living at home should have groceries and other essentials delivered… When possible, they should meet family members outside rather than inside. A comprehensive and detailed list of measures… is well within the scope and capability of public health professionals.”

“Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity.”

The progressive left, welcome to the nw Nazi Germany sponsored by the lies of the hate filled democrat left and media.
